Emily’s All Stars shine bright

EMILY Manning’s love of dancing began at five years of age.

And, although she has about 12 years’ experience, it all started when a friend asked her to go to dance class with her.

The dancer took a few years’ break from the pastime for work, but she has recently taken up the challenge of building her own studio.

About four years ago she opened a studio, but this year saw a fresh start for the centre with a name change and relocation.

Platinum Dance Centre opened at its new home in Market Lane, Muswellbrook, with five teachers including Miss Manning.

Change can bring excitement, but on top of all the success of the studio, Miss Manning decided to start a class.

Platinum All Stars began in February, and is a class for children living with disability.

“I just wanted to give opportunity for all the kids to be able to dance,” she said of the new class.

And, she has found that being a part of Platinum All Stars means the world to the eight or nine students involved.

“They’re loving it,” she said.

“I love seeing them come in every week with the biggest smiles on their faces.

“They tell me about their week – they’ve become a part of the family.”

Miss Manning also hopes to give opportunities to Upper Hunter students to learn from the best in the country.

This includes bringing professionals from places including Melbourne and Cairns to host workshops.

“I’m trying to make everything available for us little country people,” she said.

It has been a whirlwind few years for the local businesswoman.

Her initial expectation of 120 enrolments has been exceeded, and with 260 students and counting, the studio looks as though it is on the rise.

“It’s been bigger and better than I ever expected,” she said.

Miss Manning loves seeing all the students excel.

She has people as young as two at her studio, right through to those in their 40s, learning skills from jazz and hip hop, to classical ballet and contemporary.

he said dancing not only gives people a chance to build their confidence, but also meet new people, and she loves seeing the look on students’ faces when they accomplish a new feat.

There are classes at Platinum Dance Centre from Monday to Friday.
